About this book

Explores the connections between African rural livelihoods, environmental integrity and broader scale political economy. The book is organized under three main themes: the influence of global environmental narratives in the African context; the implications of regional political economy for rural African livelihoods; and the empirical manifestations of contemporary conservation and development principles through policy and programs at the community, national, regional and global levels.
